The Pizza Delivery States of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 15.009 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 4,679 trillion Kefkaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 311,791 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 598th in the world and 1st in Mount Olympus for Largest Black Market, with 4,613 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
